Time Management in College?

Time Management in College? Topic: Time for homework
July 22, 2019 / By Haylie
Question: So i'm going to be a freshman in college this fall. I'll be attending a community college. I'm kind of worried about how i'm going to manage my time. I'll be: 1 - having classes in the evening 2 - probably have a part-time job in the morning 3 - need time for homework 4 - need time to sleep 5 - I might date people/have friends 6 - need time for basics like: exercise, walking dogs, doing chores, eating, etc... How can i make time for all of this? It seems very difficult...

It is difficult. You'll manage though. You'll find that you won't necessarily have homework every single day. First and foremost you need to make sure that you put school as your priority. That means class and schoolwork are your number 1. Next you need to take care of yourself. Making sure you're getting enough sleep, proper nutrition, all that stuff. After that worry about work. Bottom line, if you don't take care of school you're going to get stressed out. I ended up quitting my job just because I didn't have enough time for school and work, and my job was scheduling me to work when I had class, and it just didn't work out. Try finding a job on campus if possible. Yeah friends and relationships are important, but at this point you might just want to have one or two dedicated days a week for friends. Again, school is the most important thing to deal with right now. Make sure you always have time for it.

It is difficult, however there are various ways to manage your time. The one I would recommend is making a list for the things you need to do today and cross them off as you do them. Also put a time on the task/activity that you need to get down so for example, computer science class 9:30am-10:45am. Run personal errand 11am-11:30am Start hw 12pm-2pm etc That is how I managed my time and it went by really well. I'm assuming your really young so enjoy your time in college, however remember that you will not be young forever and time really does fly so manage it really well and don't waste it.

Here's my suggestions, Break down your home work into 30-60 minute sections. Then work backwards from when it's supposed to be turned in. If you have 4 hours of home work that is due after a weekend, then you know you have to do a minimum of 2 hours each on Sat & Sun. So break down each day and plan on doing 1 hour in the morning, and one hour after dinner. Then you'll know how much time you have for other activities and when you can do them. Planning in advance for the time you'll need to get the work done is my best suggestions. This is what I do with my 12 yr old son. We look at the big picture and see how much time is actually available to get the work done, and then go from there. Hopefully that wasn't too confusing! Good luck
